What do you like about your seat?

I love it. I could say I love it all. I love that feeling of security that gives me because I know that my child is maximally protected, as far as possible. I like what it can be used for a long time in the rear facing, which is extremely important to me.

I love having enough places for an older child and what is comfortable for him. He never complained that he did not have enough space for his legs or that he was uncomfortable. It’s great that the backrest can really quite lean in a sleeping position.

What do you dislike about your seat?

Well, although I’m very glad that the BeSafe seats are massive (because they give me a sense of security), but it’s very difficult to put them in the car.

For only one seat you find a place (in the middle) but if you want to place two seats in the opposite direction of driving, this is a problem. We have a big car (Mazda CX5) and we could not put 2 BeSafe RF seats.

So when we need to buy a second car seat for our youngest son, we had the iZi Plus in the car that was then for three years old, and we needed another for one year old. iZi Plus was put behind the front passenger, and the new RF seat was supposed to be behind the driver. We could not install a single seat, and we tried iZi Plus, iZi Kid x2, iZi Modular. They simply took up too much space and there was no place for the driver anymore.

Unfortunately, we had to take another manufacturer. To my great sorrow.

Now I wait for my oldest son (4 years) to grow iZi Plus, so I can put my younger son (2 years) in it and move the older son to iZi Up.

And another thing – the belts with which the child is tied are quite hard to pull. I can not tighten in the first or second time. I need to pull the belt several times to get the required strength.

What is your favourite function of the seat?

I love it that there are really a lot of leg room and also love the fact that when installed can not move a single micron.

Is there anything else you’d like us to know?

Yes. Thank you! Thank you for everything you do for the safety of our children. And because you never stop working better and better, and you do not agree to sell the car seat just to fulfill legal requirements. You raise standards for others. You are the standard.

I have long researched before buying the first car seats and can safely say that in this industry there is BeSafe child car seats and then everyone else.

Keep doing a good job.

“No re-threading the harness, recline, magnetic harness holder”

Read full review

What do you like about your seat?

Independent Recline

What do you dislike about your seat?

Takes up alot of cabin space

What is your favourite function of the seat?

  • No re-threading the harness
  • Recline
  • Magnetic harness holder

Is there anything else you’d like us to know?

It’s difficult to get all the tiny crevices clean after an incident involving vomit.

Maybe making it easier to clean, or designing a waterproof cover for potty trying children as well.

BeSafe: Hi Sarah, thanks for your suggestion, we will look into it! 🙂

“Being able to alter the amount of leg room there is and not having to rethread the straps to change the height of them.”

Read full review

What do you like about your seat?

I love the fact that it was approved for use in the middle seat of my car, which meant I could fit 3 across, which in turn meant I didn’t need to buy a new car!

What do you dislike about your seat?

The head rest is very wobbly and my 2 year old often grabs it when trying to climb in to the seat herself. I’m often worried it’s going to break.

What is your favourite function of the seat?

Being able to alter the amount of leg room there is and not having to rethread the straps to change the height of them.

Is there anything else you’d like us to know?

I really wish your seats were more affordable, as everyone I know refuses to even look at them because of the price, even when I’ve explained the safety benefits.

“The straps and harness being connected making it easier for my other daughter to use the seat also.”

Read full review

What do you like about your seat?

We currently have this seat in my Mum’s car as we needed a 25kg seat for my 3.5 year old. Both my girls (3.5 years and 11 months)use this seat and both look very comfortable.

I really like the recline of the seat. My 11 month old daughter sleeps really well in it. We have had trouble with head flop in other seats, but there are no issues at all with this seat.

The fact that this seat is plus tested and won best in test in 2015 and 2017 was a deal breaker. It gives me peace of mind knowing that they protected to this level.

What do you dislike about your seat?

The seat is quite big, but it fits in my both my car and my Mum’s ok. My Mum’s vision is slightly impaired when reversing with the headrest moved up for my oldest daughter.

What is your favourite function of the seat?

  • The recline is excellent.
  • The straps and harness being connected making it easier for my other daughter to use the seat also.
  • My 3.5 year old says the seat is also very comfortable.

What do you like about your seat?

The seat fabric makes the seat really comfortable for my daughter and easy for me to keep clean. I love the magnetic straps which are so useful for getting my daughter in and out the seat.

And of course, the comfort of knowing the level of safety tests this seat has passed is a huge plus point.

“The recline is fantastic on this seat. A lot of erf don’t allow for recline, but with this seat you get the best of both worlds. ”

Read full review

What do you like about your seat?

I can honestly say that I love this seat. I have this seat in my mother in laws car. It’s excellent safety scores in both the ADAC and Swedish plus test were the main reason for buying. The fact that this seat was the winner in 2015 and 2017 gives me excellent peace of mind that I chose the right seat.

I also love the fact that it will last my daughter (10 months now) right up until she is around 5 or 6.

The recline is fantastic and it made the transition from baby carrier to a fixed seat very smooth.

The harness and the headrest being connected is another great feature as both my girls (10 months old and 3 years old) may use this seat.

What do you dislike about your seat?

It is on the large side, however the size doesn’t bother me.

What is your favourite function of the seat?

The recline is fantastic on this seat. A lot of erf don’t allow for recline, but with this seat you get the best of both worlds.

As noted above the headrest and harness being connected is great as both my girls can use this with a simply adjustment.

Is there anything else you’d like us to know?

I am absolutely over the moon with this seat. It gives me excellent peace of mind that I am keeping my daughters safe if the worst were to happen. I got this for my mother in law as she required another seat for her car to transport my two daughters. At the time my youngest daughter was still in her infant carrier. Now that she is approaching the height limit for her baby seat  I would absolutely love to win another one in order to upgrade her current seat.

What do you like about your seat?

The safety record! Fits so securely into the car and my little girl seems very comfortable. It has a good recline too.

What do you dislike about your seat?

Nothing really! My little girl isn’t tall so it doesn’t affect us but I know it hasn’t got the tallest shell so tall children outgrow more quickly. It does take up a lot of room in the car.

What is your favourite function of the seat?

The extended rear facing options.

The recline.

I have had a be safe izi combi, a be safe izi plus and I bought be safe izi kids for our cars and grandads too. Very secure seats that I have great confidence in.

BeSafe: Hi Louise, thanks a lot for sharing your review with us! Have you tried installing the iZi Plus with its special option to partially hover yet? By having the seat only touch the vehicle seat’s sitting area towards the end of the sitting area and not all the way, you can counterbalance sloping vehicle seat, giving your child a better recline position. With this installation option, it’s just important that 1. the seat’s base sits on the vehicle seat’s sitting area at the knee end of the sitting area, 2. that the support leg is minimum 90 degree to the vehicle floor or pointing slightly to the front and 3. that the front brace (anti-rotation bar) is pushed firmly into the back of the vehicle seat.
